William Marr is an internationally recognized poet, writer, and artist.  He is also the father of DHT Ventures’ president and founder… my father!

When I was in engineering graduate school, I studied Chinese literature in one of my elective courses.  One day in class, I encountered one of the proudest moments in my life: we studied some of my dad’s works!

My dad’s poems are known for a unique style.  Noted in a Chicago Tribune article: his style is “lean and pointed, letting line breaks serve as punctuation and accentuation of meaning”.  His poems are often very short, yet they have layers of meaning and metaphor captured in them.

Autumn Window is my dad’s first book of poetry in English and are translations of his own selected poems originally written in Chinese.  They are particularly special to me because he has used the messages in several of these poems to teach me some life lessons when I was growing up.
